As the media gathered on a sunny Tuesday in Miami for the planned pre-Orange Bowl interview session with Ohio State players and coaches, Braxton Miller was nowhere to be found. The Buckeyes quarterback was resting in bed, battling a flu-bug that seems to be making the rounds with other team members and staff.
Reporters questioned the legitimacy of Millers absence, assuming that he's trying to avoid questions about his NFL decision. The team refuted the speculation and offensive coordinator Tom Herman even offered to show reporters the text on his phone from Miller to prove it.
But rest easy, Buckeye Nation. While he didn't participate much, Miller did show up to practice and seemed to make a full recovery just in time for the team's planned activity -- beach day. He posted a video on Instagram of himself and teammates having fun in the sun:
Phew! Action Braxton sure had us worried for a second there.
